On April 16, 2009, seven year old Gabriel Myers apparently hanged himself in the residence of his foster parents.
Gabriel had been adjudicated dependent on September 2, 2008, following the arrest of his mother and the filing of the abuse report that brought him into care on June 29, 2008.
During the subsequent ten months, Gabriel was initially sheltered in a licensed foster home, placed with relatives, and lived at two different foster homes.
Gabriel demonstrated a number of incidents of destructive behavior and conduct problems and was treated with counseling and several psychotropic medications.
In February and March, 2009, Gabriel experienced a number of significant events in life, including changes in foster homes, psychotherapists and after-school programs, loss of privileges at home, and loss of visitation arrangements with his mother.
One psychotherapist documented that “it is clear that this child is overwhelmed with change and possibly re-experiencing trauma.”
